Professional Tree Transplanting is a blog site published by Big Tree Supply, a large tree nursery in Snohomish, WA, one of the largest in the Seattle area. One of our specialties is transplanting large trees.

Big Trees, Inc. has professional crews ready to transplant trees purchased from our nursery or tree field. After working to carefully understand the individual planting sites and requirements of our customers, Big Trees dispatches crews to install recently purchased trees.

Why You Should Have Big Trees Handle Your Tree Transplanting

Most of our customers choose this option for two main reasons:

Trees and their entire root balls can be extremely heavy. Once the tree trunk diameter for mature trees increases, the root ball weight increases exponentially and can weigh 1000 lbs or more. To minimize transplant shock, it is crucial to keep the new planting hole moist, so it can retain moisture until the tree’s root ball is placed. Our crews carefully use special techniques and equipment to lift large trees while loading, transporting, unloading and getting the transplanted tree installed correctly.

In order to transplant a tree successfully, our crews prepare the tree roots in a burlap covered root ball.

All trees purchased from our nursery, or growing field, and installed by our crews are covered by a 1-year warranty. Anytime questions arise about a transplanted tree, our office staff is ready to help and if necessary, dispatch our Certified Arborist to your site.

Big Trees Inc.: Your Professional Mature Trees Transplanting Company

Utilizing over 25 years of planting experience, our crews control the critical variables associated with a successfully transplanted tree including, soil analysis, staking, correct fertilizing and planting height. Early spring is an ideal time for transplanting trees. A newly transplanted tree, cared for correctly, will thrive and become an established tree. Those that are not cared for correctly, can suffer stress, reduced growth rate and ultimately fail.

Our crews also focus on encouraging the growth of new tree roots, which are essential for the tree to adapt to its new location. For those customers who have the capability of handling the tree planting, we provide a simple brochure that covers the important aspects of how to transplant trees. For these clients, Big Trees, Inc. can load and tarp (please bring a tarp) your trees on your truck safely or we can deliver the trees to your home.
